An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post
From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.
Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net, and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.
If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!
What do you get when you combine green tea and zipline? A great time at Daheeyeon Garden!
Daheeyeon is a green tea garden located on the east side of Jeju island. Not only does it have a large field of green tea, you can also zipline, enjoy delicious green tea ice cream at the one-of-a-king Cave Cafe, eat green-tea food, and soak your feet in a nice foot bath.
Address: 117, Seongyo-ro, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do (제주특별자치도 제주시 조천읍 선교로 117)
Directions by bus: Go to Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal and take bus 710 or 720 to 선흘2리입구 (Seonheul 2 Ri) bus stop. Walk about 4 minutes to 양잠단지 (Yangjamdanji) bus stop. Transfer to bus 981 and get off at 경덕원 (Kyeondeokwon) bus stop. Daheeyeon is right across from it. On the way back, you can catch the local bus from this stop to 함덕 (Hamdeok) and then change to other buses to go back into the city.
However, the bus is very infrequent! There are only 2 city buses that will take you to this stop daily. It’s much better to drive to Daheeyeon, or get off at Hamdeok (함덕) and call for a taxi to take you here. A taxi ride would cost from 10,000 to 12,000 won. Go with a group of friends and split the cost, because walking from one of the intercity bus stops would take about an hour.
Now onto the good stuff! Daheeyeon is more than just a tea field, although the tea field is very big! So big that you can rent a cart (20,000 won for 1 cart that fits 4 people) to go around the premise. Besides endless rows of green tea bushes, there are also other walking paths.
On the first floor of the main building is a small green tea museum.
There’s a super cool map of how to say “tea” in different languages around the world.
For those who love adventures, you can challenge the Zipline courses at Daheeyeon.
You can reserve the ticket ahead of time, or sign up when you get there. Read more about it at our blogpost here.
After a spending your energy on ziplining, you can enjoy a delicious meal at the Daheeyeon restaurant, where all the dishes are composed or organic green tea leaves and seasoning. Read more about it here.
Do your feet hurt? Well, time to enjoy a nice foot bath with green tea salt and oil. It costs 12,000won for 30 minute.
The set-up is similar to the foot bath we introduced at our blog about Herb Garden, but with green tea instead of rose scent.
If you’re looking for a fun place to spend the day with your family and friends, drive to Daheeyeon and enjoy all that it has to offer! Whether it’s a nice stroll along the green tea fields, an exciting Zipline adventure, or a delicious meal, there is something for everyone here!
